Fighting all the way

Flag-burner Paul Hopkinson and friends have plead "not guilty" to disorderly behaviour charges stemming from their latest flag-burning exercise.

Good. The charges stem purely from flag-burning, something the High Court has already found to be protected under the Bill of Rights Act 1990. Laying a different charge is simply an effort by the police to get around the court's judgement. Hopkinson should fight this all the way.
